Ton visage

calligramme

Ton visage,
La couleur de ta peau,
Peau de bébé,
Peau ridée comme un vieux parchemin,
Beauté classique
Ou à la manière de Picasso
Air sombre, inquiet,
Intimidé, impénétrable
Un sourire,
Tes yeux pétillent
Un sourire, un regard,
Lumière et bienveillance fleurissent
Comme par surprise
Alors nous devenons
Frêres et sœurs
Humains,
Frêres de cœur

Day10: #writing201

Theme: pleasure
Today’s form: sonnet
Today’s device: apostrophe


Leave Paris behind and head to the “Far East”
Forget the lights, the speed and forget the crowd,
It’s time to step aside, back to my home town
It’s time to calm down and breathe again, at least.

Instead of the concrete, its endless shades of greys
I beg for a palette of greens, yellows, velvets,
I beg for fields, summits, waterfalls and forests
Nature welcoming me in a large, big embrace

Hiking and wandering through this awesome landscapes
Enjoying food and wines, good people, mountains
“Haut-Jura”, breathtaking, under the sun or rain

If you come to France one day don’t forget to go there
I promise you heaven on earth “le paradis sur terre”
A place is called Saint-Claude… pleasure is everywhere!

COLD OUTSIDE
FROZEN INSIDE
STRIKE A MATCH
RUB YOUR PALMS
JUMP AROUND
SHOUT AND CRY
JUMP AROUND
SING AND SMILE
LIGHT THE INNER FIRE TRAPPED DEEP DOWN INSIDE
LIGHT YOUR INNER FIRE WAITING FOR YOUR SIGN

Day8 : #writing201

Day 8
Theme: flavor
Today’s form: elegy
Today’s device: enumeratio


Imagine a sweetness, a smoothness, a softness,
Imagine something as light as a cloud,
As the full moon, white and round

Imagine something creamy, crunchy, deliciously crispy
Imagine a pastry
Making you profoundly happy,
Releasing a real bliss
And simply called the « Délice »

Part of all family parties
Highlights of birthdays, weddings even under the Christmas trees

A souvenir of butter cream
Bits of hazelnuts, layers of nougatine,
A meringue pearly, fluffy
A touch of caramel,
A drop of vanilla…so tasty…

The recipe was secretly kept
No body today to break the secret !

« Comme un parfum d’enfance… »*
Just a bliss…le « Délice »…


* like the fragrance of childhood

Day 3&4 : #writing201

DAY 3
Theme : skin
Today’s form : poetry prose
Today’s device : internal rhyme

My skin, my bark, my frontier, my shell, my go between…You gently protect me from the outside. You cover me as if you were a plaid for my cells, a roof for my soul…With you, I experiment the warmth of the sun, the icy bite of a rain drop, the caress of the wind…the wound, the bruises, the pain…and the softness of my lover’s skin, the peachy skin of my baby… My skin is the threshold. I am the only one who has the key which gives access to my interiority. This sacred place lies deep down inside. My ultimate refuge. Under my skin there is a soul. No, No, that is not a stupid thing! Let me tell you…I am not a fool!


DAY 4
Theme : imperfect
Today’s form : limerick
Today’s device : enjambment

I am not perfect at all
In terms of aspect or intellect, myself as a whole
But imperfection is like a twist, a surprise
Which invites you to open your eyes, wise…
Knowing beauty pours from the heart, as a waterfall
